Come with me to this 1-day program and enjoy hiking from Santo Stefano di Sessanio to Rocca Calascio in L’Aquila province, Abruzzo.

Santo Stefano di Sessanio is a medieval town inside the Gran Sasso e Monti della Laga National Park in the Abruzzo region, in southern Italy. From this town, we’ll hike to Rocca Calascio, a medieval fortress in the highest region of the Apennines. On this tour, we’ll spend the whole day exploring this fantastic area in Italy.

First, we’ll depart from Santo Stefano at 8 am. The hike will take us through Campo Imperatore, a beautiful alpine meadow above Gran Sasso Massif. While hiking, we’ll contemplate the stunning landscapes of the Apennines and get to see some of the lovely local fauna. Apart from the nature hike, we’ll also have time to explore Santo Stefano and Rocca Calascio, an amazing historical landmark. Finally, we’ll return to Santo Stefano at 4 pm.

In the summer, we’ll also have the chance to enjoy this hike on full moon nights. If you’re coming in this season, you can’t miss this thrilling experience!

Although this is not a technically difficult hike, keep in mind that it will be helpful to have a very good level of fitness. Depending on the time of the year you choose to come, we’ll find different types of obstacles, such as the wind, the cold and the rain. Also, take into account that we’ll cover a distance of around 10 kilometers and face an elevation gain of 500 meters on the hike.

So, would you like to take part of this wonderful hike? Then get in touch with me by sending the request to book your place. I’ll be happy to guide you year round!
